Put on your pajamas and bring your sleeping bag—it’s time for Just Grace to go to a super sleepover! Birthdays and sleepovers are always super fun, but there’s just one thing that keeps Just Grace from getting super excited about this sleepover.
Book eleven in the Just Grace series continues the illustrated adventures of the beloved third-grader Just Grace, who has been praised by the Horn Book for having a voice that is “consistently funny, frank, and believable.” The familiar school, friendship, and family situations in these books resonate with Grace’s audience and keep them “speed[ing] through this latest and look[ing] forward eagerly to the next.”
Gr 2–4—In this latest series installment, Just Grace has been invited to Grace F.'s birthday party. When she learns that it is to be an outdoor sleepover, she is nervous about the sleeping in a tent. Grace also deals with challenges at school after telling her friend Mimi that there is a ghost in the recycling container, which she does to hide the fact that she forgot to make Grace F. a birthday card. Soon the whole school is lining up to see the ghost and Grace has a hard time keeping track of her lies. After a practice night camping in the backyard with Dad, Grace resolves her problems at school and heads off to the super sleepover. The first-person narrative, interspersed with cartoon drawings, shows the third-grader's unique perspective on the challenges of school, friendship, and family. Short vignettes make this an approachable selection for new chapter book readers.—Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga Public Library System, OH
